It’s football season and we’re so ready for the Chicago Bears to kick some butt this year! If you choose to go to one of the earlier games in the season, we have a perfect way for you to make a whole day out of it. Make Navy Pier your destination for the Harry’s Park, Tailgate and Cruise Party!
Before the Bears game, you can join fans at Harry Caray’s Tavern on the Pier for brunch at 9 a.m. After that, the 101.9 Mix Road Crew will join in on the fun for the tailgate party! Harry’s Tailgate Specials will be offered throughout the day for all home games alongside Harry’s Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary Bar. Doesn’t that sound like the best way to get ready for the game? Don’t worry about finding a cab afterwards, once you’re ready to head over to Soldier Field Shoreline Sightseeing has set up special discounted water taxi rides. Hop on a water taxi, parked right in front of the restaurant, with your choice of a beverage for the ride over. Be sure to grab a voucher from Harry Caray’s to pick up your discounted, roundtrip ticket. The trip to and from Soldier Field will be $11 for adults, $7 for children, and kids under 2 can ride for free. What a savings over taking a taxi and fighting traffic!
Following the game, the Shoreline water taxi will transport fans back to Harry’s for a post-game tailgate where they can keep celebrating the Bears victory! Shoreline water taxis leave Navy Pier for the Bears games throughout the day, at the top of the hour and at 20 and 40 minutes past the hour, weather permitting. Shoreline water taxis return to Navy Pier 20 minutes and 40 minutes after the Bears games. If by chance it gets too cold or weather is unstable for water taxis, ground transportation will be provided to/from the game for guests.
Added bonus: Customers of Harry Caray’s at Navy Pier will receive a discounted parking rate of $13 in the Navy Pier parking garage during all home game days with validation.
Even if you don’t have a ticket to the game, you can still take advantage of Harry’s discounted parking and come in to tailgate with the fans! Harry’s offers premier football viewing on its 30 HDTVs located throughout the bar, dining room and patio. You won’t miss a single play!
Tailgating at Harry Caray’s is the only thing you need to make a good game day, a great game day!
